  Old Guys Rule!
Do you have one? An old guy I mean? According to the "Old Guys Rule" philosophy, old age is a ...
    Badge of Honor      

There comes a time in his life when comfort meets substance. When all his hard work seems to have paid dividends, and the world is at his command. All the things he hoped he could do someday, he's doing. The toils of youth are now his experiences... he is no longer the student, but the teacher.

To celebrate his accomplishments we offer up "Old Guys Rule." Make him something special, a badge of honor for a life well spent, but not nearly over...

  Charley Harper's "Maritime" ... has arrived on Ruby Street!

Charley Harper, a 50's era American Modernist was best known for his highly stylized wildlife prints, posters and book illustrations. He termed his style "minimal realism" and captured the essence of his subjects with the fewest possible visual elements.

We love these prints for the simple, retro, color palette, the movement, the keen nature observations and most of all the pure sense of joy, the whimsy. They make us smile.

Even more, we love this collection from Birch Fabrics because it is printed with low impact dyes on 100% organic cotton.

Best of all, we are able to offer this collection at a fantastic price! 

            Shop the Collection Here!
